On this episode of Campground of the Week, we welcome guest correspondent Scott Elias to review Mosca Campground at San Luis State Park in the great state of Colorado. Scott Elias is a former educator who now works for Apple. He grew up camping, but his wife didn’t so it took some convincing to get her and the family on board with the RV dream. Scott must be convincing, though, because now they have a brand new Jayco Whitehawk and are spending as many weekends as possible exploring their beautiful home state.
Mosca Campground is located in the high mountain valley between the San Juan and Sangre de Cristo mountain ranges. It is only 15 miles west of Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve, so it makes a perfect base camp for exploring that NPS site.
Mosca Campground is on the smaller side, with just about 50 campsites, so you will want to book as early as possible especially if you want your pick of campground locations. All the sites have electric hookups and are situated around the western edge of San Luis Lake. Scott has some great advice on picking the best sites, and also has some ‘camper beware’ tips.
Scott’s family spent the long weekend enjoying all the nooks and crannies of Great Sand Dunes National Park & Preserve. Here are all the activities, hike, and attractions mentioned in this episode:
- Dune hiking
- Medano Creek
- Hiking in the Sangre De Cristo range
- Sand boarding and Sand Sledding
- Hiking Blanco Peak
- Zapata Falls
For all of our listeners who want to visit the Great Sand Dune National Park, Scott has done the legwork and found the perfect campground. Listen to Campground of the Week episode #53 for all the details!
